Kurdish independence important for Middle East stability, says EU VP

By Rudaw 23/6/2016
Rudaw
Richard Czarnecki, one of fourteen vice presidents of the European Parliament, describes the Kurdistan Region as one of the most important areas of stability in the Middle East region.

The Polish politician visited the Kurdistan Region at the beginning of the year. Recalling that visit, he said, “I remember the strong will of your people to be an independent country. And I think it is the most positive scenario for your country and maybe also for your region.”

He called on the European Union to support the Kurdistan Region militarily in the war with the Islamic State and also in caring for the many refugees and internally displaced being hosted in Kurdistan. If the EU can find money to support Turkey, he said, referring to the migrant deal with Ankara, “we should also open the door for our political decision about financial support for Kurdistan.” 

And, he noted, now is the time for action. “I think now is time for decision, not for thinking.”

Sounds promising and I hope he will be able to speak out during the EU parliament in session. There are a number of decent politicians/leaders who have the same believe that Kurdish independent is good for the region but they don't want to be the first to speak out. Look at Germany; the only decent country came out to recognize the Armenian genocide by the Turks but no other country could pick up the courage to follow suit. I am sure they all will gradually. Kurdish independence is different, we have to announce our independence in order for the decent country to support us.
